I haven't written a thing, pleasure related, since this last summer. I finally have time to get back into writing, after receiving my B.S., but it seems like my anxiety won't allow me to progress. I believe I just feel generally overwhelmed with the research. I have three stories that I like and want to do, but all need separate research. I don't know where I should begin, how much time I should put in, what I should be reading, ect. Am I just making the "amateur" mistake of thinking everything has to be perfect? Should I just pick one and just go at it? I am not an anxious/stressful person, and I enjoy writing. I just seem can't take the step from a non-researched short story to a full fledged novel, but I want to.
